COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2014 Beer Camp Across America Release.

As longtime friends, Russian River brewmaster Vinnie Cilurzo and our own Brian Grossman are no strangers to brewing experiments. While looking for inspiration for this collaboration, Vinnie and Brian decided to honor the creations of legendary Belgian brewer Yvan De Baets with their own hop-forward American-Belgian mash-up.

From complex Belgian-inspired styles to American wild ales and hoppy Double IPA’s, Russian River always pushes boundaries while respecting technique and quality. Co-owners Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo are longtime friends of Sierra Nevada and they always have a six-pack of Pale Ale in their fridge at home.

Bottle from the 12 pack Beer Camp from Total Wine in Boca Raton. Snifter in my dining room. Pours a light gold with a very slight haze. Small white fluffy head. Aroma is cereal, Belgian yeasts, slight spice, banana, cloves. Teh taste is similar with a slight dry funkiness and hoppiness that is not as characteristic of a Belgian blonde. Nice carbonation and refreshing body. FInish is dry spices and hoppy. Very nice job.

Flavor is lots of fruits with the apricot dominating and the flowers added a lot of unusual tastes. The finish is a bit earthy. Goes a bit earthy and yeasty towards the dry finish.
